- In a sentence: He’s a lanky, curly-haired Texan who long ago established himself as one of country-music’s most peculiar fellows.
- In his lyrics: love, heartbreak, the sensitivity of penguins (“Penguins”), hungry preachers that feast on doves (“Church”), and an uncle named Leon who lives in a closet (“Creep Like Me”)
- In his trophy case: four country-music Grammys
- In his wheelhouse: blues and big-band jazz, which he blends with country until his style’s harder to pin down than a pile of paper-bag puppets under a ceiling fan
- In Hollywood: he’s acted in numerous movies, including Walk Hard and a string of Robert Altman films
- On his latest album, Release Me: Texas country, western swing, and a collaboration with k.d. lang
- How you know him: as a Grammy-nominated pioneer of Americana and heartland rock
- How else you know him: as the musical mind behind the oft-covered “Have a Little Faith in Me”
- How he got his start: as a songwriter for a Nashville recording company—but since he couldn’t read or write scores, he recorded all of his songs himself
- “Sure As I’m Sittin’ Here”: one of his earliest songs, which became a Top 40 hit when it was covered by Three Dog Night
- Other names who have performed his songs: Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Chaka Khan, B.B. King, Eric Clapton
- His tie to Thelma and Louise: his song “Tennessee Plates” is featured in the Oscar-winning film
- Latest album: Terms of My Surrender
- What the Wall Street Journal said about the title track: the review praises Hiatt’s “craggy voice and mordant wit.”
